  1. Hoping someone could help me resolve the following issue that I've been having over the course of a few months.

    Issue: Computer randomly restarts without warning just kills off.

    - Crashes when booting from time to time & after login screen, before Windows logo shows. (even first time booting on the day)

    Confusion: When I do I get it started after a few failed attempts I can be on it for a given amount of time before I have any issues.

    Example: I can play games on it for hours and it wont shut down. (LoL/L4D etc)

    Specs - Computer is outdated-*

    Processor: AMD Athlon 64 x2 Processor 6000+
    Ram: 6gb
    Operating System :Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
    Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4670
    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-M61P-S3

    I've Tried: Checking all wires to make sure they've been connected properly, cleaned out computer case 0 dust, tried multiple HDs same issue. Resetting bios allow me to boot up without fail.. Could it be bios?

    Have you tried checking your RAM and HDD with some utilities to rule out some possible issues? You might also need to check/monitor your hardware temps to find out if any of your hardware is having unusual behaviors.
